Students duped? No actual budget cuts for Education?

Ryan Chua of ABS-CBN News wrote:

Sen. Franklin Drilon said on Thursday there is actually no cut in the budget of state universities and colleges in the proposed 2011 national budget.

What was removed, he said, was around P2.8 billion in congressional insertions in the 2010 budget of SUCs, which President Gloria Arroyo vetoed until the government finds new sources of revenue.

The senate also realigned to the tune of 300M pesos budget/grant for research development in selected schools.
